-Closed-162 Followers Giveaway!!

OK, so I had originally intended to do this giveaway at 100 followers, and then when that didn't happen 150 followers and THEN when that didn't happen..yeah. I'm at 162 followers right now, so we'll just go with that! (Please excuse these crappy photos, I took them quickly before class this morning.)

Brand new and unopened Wet n Wild "Lust" palette. I loved mine so much that I got one to give away. I think these have been discontinued and I got the last one at my CVS, lucky you! See my look using this palette here. Also a Wet n Wild Megalengths mascara. I've been using mine quite a bit lately, it works pretty well! It has one of those comb-like brushes.

China Glaze nail polish in "High Roller." This is pretty much the perfect red nail polish, which is something everyone needs. I never used this because I have a few other colors that are very similar to it. It's really pretty and I just hated seeing it get neglected.

2 Meow Cosmetics samples (one liner - "Typhoon" and one eyeshadow - "Kinkajou") along with five other eyeshadows that I sampled from my own collection. They are:
Glamour Doll Eyes "Drag Queen" - teal with pink shimmer
Persephone Minerals "Mars Crystal Power" - Sparkly Red/gold duochrome
Sugarpill "Lumi" - White with very noticeable turquoise shimmer/duochrome
Kryolan emerald green color. It doesn't have a name..it's..emerald green. Very pretty.
Morgana Cryptoria "Witch's Wine" - wine/burgundy color with noticeable turquoise sparkles
These are a few colors that I thought were worth having. I tried not to pick any purples since the palette is mostly purple, and this next thing is purple.

Brand new full sized jar of Aromaleigh's "Frutti di Bosco." Aromaleigh has since closed down, so you can't get this color anymore. It's a gorgeous deep purple. See my swatch of this color here.

The winner will also receive a code for 25% off anything in my Etsy shop. :)

This giveaway IS open internationally, but this excludes the nail polish. It's a big hassle to ship nail polish internationally and the people at my local post office are JERKS and I really don't want to deal with them to be perfectly honest haha
If a non-US reader wins, I will give the nail polish away to a second place winner.

  13. What a cute giveaway!! :) I'm kicking myself for not getting Frutti di Bosco when it came out originally. I love to see swatches & reviews of different products & companies. I like to research before I buy, and the more people I see post about stuff (positive or negative), I can better decide on my purchases. :)

  26. Hi there! I follow with GFC.
    I just found this blog today while looking for Morgana Cryptoria lip stick swatches and had to subscribe. You've got some neat products on here and all of your swatches are very nice and helpful. Plus, who could resist that header?
    I'm excited about seeing what products you feature. I too am from a small town, and the make up choices aren't very plentiful unless you turn to the internet. And even then, it can be hard to find things that are budget- friendly (I'm a college gal too, lol.)
